Having just watched Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, I can say with great conviction: don't diss the chimps. They have guns  Shocked

no the only gifted chimps (and I mean with $$) here are Trump and some of the Kardashians and by writing this, I realize I'm insulting the real chimps out there so I'll change that to chumps

I never met Trump (thankfully), but (many) years ago I met Harry and Leona Helmsley (when they were still alive, mind you) and they seemed nice enough.

Might want to shrink that down a bit...though to be honest, just seeing the Ani-Men again is good enough for me. I liked those guys.

I actually edited out the original post of the Ani-Men as I couldn't see Murdoch. I replaced it with just Daredevil by Kirby.

I was doing an internship in the news department of a radio station in New York City my senior year of college when they were there for the taping of a public affairs program (talking about real estate, I believe) . . . I had to keep track of the timing and let the person doing the interview know when they were at the end of the time for the program.

Great characters! And of the entire group (both line-ups) only Bird Man II and Dragonfly are still alive (apparently). What a waste of animal themed criminal potential.

I've never really noticed what colour dragonflies were, to be honest. I assumed her colour scheme was more or less right.  Embarassed

for reasons I can't explain, I used to like Black Bolt


My knowledge of Marvel characters is severely limited to who was around from about 1964 to 1970.  After that, I pretty much was gone from Marvel.  I don't think I bought an issue of any Marvel comic until Spider-Man #1 came out.

"Behold the silent Black Bolt, ever regal, ever vigilant, as he glides o'er his land like an awesome, airborne wraith..."

See, THAT'S the kind of introduction that would make me want to read on. Cool name and costume too.

Mutants, in the Marvel Universe, are people born with the X gene. Inhumans are the descendants of primitive humans altered by the Kree using the Terrigen mists. Totally different thing.

I'd guess so. The difference being that the metagene requires a catalyst to activate it while mutants just manifest naturally at puberty.

Is the X gene the same thing as the X chromosome? 'Cos I've got two of those.

And, for the other side, here's some guy's list of 10 Worst Marvel Heroes Ever.

(Though I disagree with some of them myself.)

Another questionable / debatable list I stumbled upon is The 12 Most Pointless X-Men.

I like Squirrel Girl and Dazzler, but I'm pretty much in agreement with him on the others. Then again, I've never really accepted any X-Man who joined the team after Kitty Pryde, or at a push, Rogue.
